I decided that I was going to switch to a smooth bore barrel for two reasons: 1. Foster slugs are much cheaper and 2. They still get the job done. I've never shot at a deer at more than 60 yards, which is completely doable with foster style slugs. It's defiantly not a hindrance to shoot the cheap slugs; the people I hunt with always shoot deer and it brings them down just as fast at the ranges we normally shoot at.
The Remington is shorter and much handier than my 535. It has a 4 inch shorter barrel which I like. Remington's open sights are also much better than Mossberg's. I can already tell this gun is going to be perfect for drives and close quarters. I'm going to have to get used to having the safety near the triggerguard though.
I purchased a saddle mount and mounted a Cabela's red dot sight also. I'm just waiting to have the real swivel stud installed and I will also have a sling on it.
